Position of Planetary systems at given time

  1. Oct 29, 2008 #1
    Does anybody have a list of the positions and velocities of all major objects in the solar system at the same time? (i.e. at Jan. 1 2000 12:00 AM, earth was here compared to the sun, and moving with this velocity, and jupiter was here, and the sun had this velocity, etc?)

    I recently wrote a simple n body code, and was going to throw it onto my website as a little outreach thing. I'd like to show a set of inputs that resembles the solar system, so that people can look at the evolution of each body. However, i need a realistic map of wherestuff was at any given time (i can then backevolve it to whichever date is needed)

    Thanks,

    Here's Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto on January 1, 2005 00:00:00 UT

    Following each object's name are 6 numbers: Position x,y,z in meters, and Velocity x,y,z in m/s.
    The Sun is 0,0,0,0,0,0
